After a 4-week test phase, the tests have passed into the nationwide tests as throughout Austria. Around 20 companies with around 200 employees take part voluntarily. In this way, the situation can be monitored and, if necessary, responded to immediately. The tests are expected to be financed until October 31, 2020.

Testing will continue throughout the winter season.
